God can you imagine if this came out 10 years back, the amount of analysis and theories it woulda gotten on here? She's actually put a fair bit of detail into this thing, but unfortunately most of the comments I see are 'its pretty' or 'so fierce' etc.


Doesn't help that it's not even really a proper song, just the intro track for the album.


Oh well, that's the way the apple rots.


PS. also before you get blown away by that eyeball art installation like I did, I'll save you the pain and tell you that it wasn't made for this MV, it's just the fucking Subaru building haha

I was very surprised to see Aya Sato. Does anyone know whether it was filmed recently or filmed some time back and only released recently? Aya Sato disappeared from my radar completely and I had read some pretty awful rumors about her.

Ahhh, so that's where this classic KZK promo was shot:

outstanding music video. it does a spectacular job of elevating the half-song. i’ll be sorely disappointed if there is no follow up video to close/answer the plot that’s been set up here.

this also makes me really want a pair of sister videos for shuukyou/souretsu

Why all the effort to make a visual spectacle for a non-song? Is she running out of ideas to spend her money?

Just so frustrating to be hyped up by the sight of the thumbnail in my YouTube suggestions over for nothing.

And her vocals there are again unsurprisingly mixed for a deaf person.

This meta-critique warms my heart.

Kinda curious about that timeline as well, having now seen Aya in the PV and Bambi in EXPO '18.


Looking forward to the HZM track and outro given what's been revealed so far. Getting closer...

Shiina-san performed Tori to Ebi to Buta live on CDTV this weekend: Link here.

Also, Shiina and Sakurai Atsuhi will perform Kakeochi sha on Music Station on Friday May 31st. Really looking forward to that.

Stray thoughts:
The PV - I agree it's quite intricate and I appreciate the attempt to close the loop thematically on the past couple years. The lone horn solo at the end gave me goosebumps. Still, I get the frustration that it's still a prologue. Can't wait to see how she follows up!

TOKYO - It's refreshing to hear her scale down the arrangement and let the melody really shine. It reminds me of Sakasa ni Kazoete in the best way possible. Aside from the general 60s jazz vibe though, I'm not sure what specifically makes this sound like another showtune (esp given the lack of orchestration)?
